The Secret To Perfect Swiss Skin Lies With These 5 Products

For Labor Day weekend this year, I decided to do something slightly out of the ordinary and ventured to the beautiful city of Zurich, Switzerland. The highlights from my trip — too many to count! — included truffle cheese, an abundance of delicious mushrooms, freshly made green juice, drinks at the magical Frau Gerold Garden, and last and certainly the best, numerous trips to the local pharmacies.
A trip to a Swiss pharmacy is like visiting a French or English pharmacy on steroids. Each one specializes in a certain something, and is filled with top-of-the-line skin care products. Everyone knows that the Swiss are known for meticulous, pristine, high-quality standards — just think of its watches and chocolate. So, it's a no-brainer that its skin care is out of this world!
One of my favorites was Osswald, which just opened a New York City location. It contains only the best and most exclusive lines from brands that originated in Switzerland, not to mention a kick-ass perfume selection. To no surprise, I came home with a suitcase full of my new Swiss finds, and after a few weeks of testing 'em, I've nailed down the top five products that will surely get you on your way to having that creamy Swiss skin.
